Poggio Foco - Sesa, Maremma, Tuscany, Italy (2009)
A blend of Merlot & Cabernet Franc in typical Bordeaux style but with a definite Italian feel. Intense ruby purple hue. On the nose, vigorous and full scents of blackberries, black cherries, cassis and crushed raspberries. Notes of graphite, cocoa powder, balsamic tones and dark tobacco. Full bodied with rich minerality and fine-grained tannins. A long, persistent & savoury wine.
